Winter, Summer, Spring, and Fall this is one of my most favorite places to go for long walks. The canal itself 36 miles along a path runs along much of it especially through the Princeton-Kingston corridor.

A 650 acre Natural Preservation Site set aside in Plainsboro, NJ.

It's putt-putt style golf, out among trees and lakes.....
